UFC on Versus 5 Gives $65,000 Bonuses to Few Fighters
Chris Lytle, Dan Hardy and Donald Cerrone were able to get a bonus of $65,000 after their fights at UFC on Versus 5.
UFC on Versus 5, which took place in Milwaukee last Sunday night, is filled with finishes and exciting bouts that left UFC officials with some difficulty on choosing the post-fight awards and bonuses.
After the astonishing bout between Dan Hardy and Chris Lytle, it was almost easy to think that the two would be the Fight of the Night. Chris Lytle had difficulty in facing his opponent, but he was still able to manage to end the fight with a submission — earning him the Submission of the Night. He had earned $65,000 each for his two awards, and earned a 2012 Softail Blackline motorcycle from Harley Davidson for his victory. On the other hand, Dan Hardy scored a $65,000 bonus for his part in the fight and a promise from the UFC co-owner and CEO – Lorenzo Fertitta- that he will not be released from the contract despite his fourth consecutive loss.
Meanwhile, Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone obtained the Knockout of Night bonus, which earned him $65,000, after knocking out Charles Oliveira through a hook punch and a knee.View Article Source »
